Employment Opportunity at Mural Arts! – Summer Assistant Teaching Artist

This Deadline Expired: Friday, April 3, 2020

The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program’s Art Education Department serves over 2000 youth annually through free out-of-school time art education programs in neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia.  Our programs provide a creative outlet for some of the city’s most vulnerable youth.

Mural Arts seeks to build safe spaces with and for the youth we serve, and our students’ work demonstrates their capacity for thinking deeply and creating fearlessly.  Our programs provide young people between the ages of 10 and 22 a year-long course of study in the visual arts. Our curriculum offers students the technical and creative foundation necessary to imagine, design, and create a wide range of individual and public works of art. Whether creating a mural or honing foundational art skills, lessons are designed with both short and long-term goals in mind, incorporating artistic and social history in addition to traditional and emerging art processes. At every turn we encourage our students to reflect on themselves and make a positive difference in the communities in which they work and play.
